Snippets – 22 December 2010

(27 people died but what caused the accident is yet to be confirmed, at least by the right people but already fingers being pointed at the driver and the bus whilst the bodies of the dead Thai tourists being sent home. Image source: http://www.salon.com/)

Messy, Dirty But Necessary

(PKR cannot be a one-man-show. At end of the day, it has to rely on committees, rules and procedures. Dr Molly Cheah now heads a nine-member central election committee — made up of ordinary members — who will oversee the party’s first ever direct elections.

It would have been better if PKR had bull-dozed it’s “first in Malaysia – one member, one vote” election process and see what had worked and what did not work and improved on the next election.…

Pakatan Gangsters

(After PKR, the next PR party in trouble in DAP but are they? Image source: http://www.fahnenversand.de)

Well, perhaps it was from a pro-BN blogger, I was not surprised to read this:-

In the same breath the Pakatan Gangsters conducted a candle light vigil against the ISA yesterday. The vigil was just a distraction – to divert attention away from the crap that is now hitting the fan: their links with gangsterism

Gangsterism is increasing in Selangor and consequently in Kuala Lumpur.

Subsidy Gone But…

We seriously need a divine’s help on this…

A long, long time ago, when the petrol price was increased, one “work-with-me” PM vowed to use the RM4 billion saved on petrol subsidies on the development of public transportation.…

Readying Perak

Let’s look at the news snippets first….

First, this:-

The conundrum of who is the rightful menteri besar of Perak will be resolved on Tuesday (Feb 9) when the five-man Federal Court bench pronounces its ruling.

Then, this:-

Twenty-four marginal seats are expected to play a major role in deciding which party rules Perak, should a snap poll be called

And then finally this:-

Election Commission deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar recently disclosed that 28 per cent or 4.39

PAS for ALL

(“PAS for all” is not just hearsay. Image source: http://aberamly.wordpress.com)

It is no secret that out of the Pakatan Rakyat members, PKR is having a tougher time dealing with its politicians.

DAP and PAS may have their own problems but at least, compared to PKR, it is nothing major. In fact, at times, it does look like they are continuing to strengthen the party.…

Screw the Pakatan

(Breakdown of missing Pakatan politicians during the crucial voting of national budget recently – chart source: Go Malaysia)

The question is what happened to the missing 20 especially those on the MIA list includes, sadly, senior politicians and one Chief Minister?

After several years getting the key votes from the people, are these people from the Pakatan been starting to slack without them knowing about it?…

Cow Head & Racial Harmony

(Image source: www.malaysiakini.com)

When I first saw the image on the net, my initial thoughts was ‘Oh God, don’t tell me that this happened in Malaysia – what these jokers are trying to prove?”

Peaceful protest is good and healthy but these guys got their methods of protest all wrong – there is no need to mess up the area with poor cow’s blood!…

Overheard in Taiping

PPP may be sailing in troubled waters in Taiping, so I overheard when I was in Taiping last week. And this is what was told to me:-

It seems Kayveas was supposed to do talk in an Indian highly populated area and he was late for 2 – 3 hours. His wife was there early but had nothing much to say to the crowd who was waiting for Kayveas to voice out some of their concerns.

Malaysian MPs these days

[This is going to be one long post before the holidays and my 2nd trip to Bangkok next week]

Before we start, let’s get some definitions right, shall we? It is clear that some people have forgotten its real meaning and purpose:-

Conscience = the awareness of a moral or ethical aspect to one’s conduct together with the urge to prefer right over wrong

Principle = a rule or standard, especially of good behavior: a man of principle or the collectivity of moral or ethical standards or judgments

Member of Parliament = a representative elected by the voters of an electoral district to a parliament

It’s tough to be a good MP these days.…
